[Press Release From SCPA]
In celebration of World Animal Day, the SCPA is delighted to announce the upcoming “Dog Adoption Date” event on 7 October, 2023 (Saturday), dedicated to raising awareness on the number of adoptable mongrels without a home and promoting “Adopt, Don’t Shop”.
Due to factors such as emigration and other circumstances, the number of people opting to adopt mongrels has sharply declined. Meanwhile, the number of rescued animals continues to rise. As a result, all three adoption centres run by the SPCA are currently at full capacity, with over 100 dogs eagerly waiting to find their forever homes. Mongrels, particularly adult mongrels, face even fewer opportunities to find their forever homes despite possessing excellent qualities such as being calmer and easier to train.
Not only will the rescue dogs from the SPCA adoption centres be joining the “Dog Adoption Date” and interact with attendees outside their kennels, but participants will also have the chance to meet the “unseen” dogs – mongrels that are ready for adoption but currently still in foster care or other areas not accessible by visitors due to the lack of kennels across the SPCA adoption centres.
This event will provide a unique opportunity for these deserving dogs to meet potential adopters in person and finally find their perfect match.
